The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli
I am Elizabeth. I love reading, and my favorite book is My Sister’s Keeper. I am in the 8th grade and enjoy dance.
The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli is about a girl named Molly who has had 26 unrequited crushes. She is very shy, and she can’t even fathom having a strong relationship with most of those people. Molly has a chance to have a great relationship, but she also has feelings for another boy. Her cousin sets her up with a boy named Will. She likes Will a lot, but she thinks he is too cool for her. She doesn’t feel much of an emotional connection. However, Molly works with a boy named Reid, and she has a lot of fun with him, and she feels an emotional connection. Molly thinks that people will judge her because he isn’t the cutest boy. Molly has a decision to make, but in the end she makes sure she is happy.
Overall The Upside of Unrequited is a really good book, and you can become very invested in it. It was a very fun read and I think that it is the type of book to read once, and pass onto your friend to read. I think that most people would enjoy this book because it is just a generally happy story.
